Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 3 Chassis Review: Page 2 of 7

If there is one thing everyone who considers themselves an enthusiast in the PC community loves, its having the ability to customize your system to fit your personality. With things like case modding growing in popularity, Cooler Master decided to take advantage of the communities ever growing demand for customization with the release of their MasterCase series. First was the MasterCase Pro 5 and the MasterCase Maker 5. Now, with the release of the MasterCase Pro 3, Cooler Master has brought full modularity and customization to the smaller form factor. However, does their FreeFormModular System truly give you the ability it “Make it Yours?” We’d like to thank Cooler Master for sending us the MasterCase Pro 3 for this review. Now let’s go in-depth with the MasterCase Pro 3 and see if its worth of the name.

With the MasterCase Pro 3, there is a focus on customizability and modularity. The Master Case Pro 3 comes with 2 140mm fans pre-installed. However, this MATX chassis has room for a total of up to 5 140 or 120mm fans. There are many features that make the MasterCase Pro 3 stand out for the crowd. One of, if not the most prominent feature of the MasterCase series is the FreeForm Modular System. This system allows you to Customize the look and functionality of the chassis, but also adjust the inside to fit your build. You can also upgrade the case as you see fit. The MasterCase Pro 3 offers many of the features of the MasterCase Pro 5, just in a smaller form factor. Like many cases, the MasterCase Pro 3 has a side panel window, so you can display your build. There is a removable mid-plate that can hide the power supply. This is something more and more companies are doing and I love this feature. Just about everypart of this chassis ie either moveable or removeable. The FreeForm Modular System is one of the best concepts when it comes to PC cases in recent memory.
